Ghost (1click install) - Failed to send email while testing the email configuration


I recently did a one-click install for Ghost on a DO droplet. However, when I am testing the email configuration, I am getting - “Failed to send email.” error. Am I missing something?

npm install -g nodemailer

I am also having this problem. Does anyone have any advice on this? Is it suppose to “just work” or do we need to do additional configuration beyond the 1-click installer.

Also having the same issue.


I am also facing same problem can anyone resolve the "failed to send " error.
